Objectless Awareness!

Worldly people want things of the world. Devotees choose God. In the Mahabharata during the Kurukshetra war, Lord Krishna granted to both Arjuna and Duryodhana that they could choose either between Him on one side and His warriors on the other side. Arjuna chose Krishna whereas Duryodhana chose his warriors. Swami Vivekananda said Krishna was the charioteer for Arjuna. If we choose and believe then the Lord will also be our charioteer.

Objectless awareness – Awareness is there but the object isn’t there. When there is no object there won’t be any attraction. It is like the hare’s horn. You may ask, ‘Is it thick or thin?’ but if there is no horn itself, where is the question of thick or thin?
